How humble we’ve become. After attempting to strip singing-sensation Usher Raymond of his parental rights, now ex-wife Tameka Foster (both pictured) seemingly has only one request: a permanent home for both her and her kids on Usher’s dime, reports TMZ.
For the past few weeks, Usher and Tameka have been battling in court to determine who will have full custodial rights over their children, Usher Terry Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond. As it stands, Usher currently has physical custodial rights, but Tameka challenged his right to custody by making past claims that Usher is a neglectful and irresponsible parent who has consistently failed to ask her permission on key issues, regarding their children. When that didn’t seem to work, Tameka tried in vain to force the court to make Usher take a drug test.
But how things have changed.
According to reports, Usher has been granted the right to evict Tameka from the home she lives in Georgia. Coincidentally, Usher owns that home and can sell it at any time just as long as he notifies Tameka 60 days in advance. Since it appears that Usher does indeed plan to sell the home, Tameka is said to now be asking Usher to buy her a permanent home so she isn’t left homeless.
We’re told Tameka fears Usher is going to pull the trigger — leaving her buried in legal debt with no place to live — so she’s asking him for a permanent home for her and Usher’s kids.
Has she ever heard the saying, “Don’t bite the hand that feeds you”?
Not surprisingly, Usher has allegedly responded that he will NOT buy her another home and the ball is in his court.
Usher and Tameka married in September of 2007, but almost immediately, their union would spark a backlash from Usher fans who felt that Tameka was a gold digger who was also too old for the young star.
Not surprisingly, Usher filed for divorce from Tameka in 2009. In 2010, Usher told People magazine why the marriage didn’t work:
“We’re two different people,” he says, “and we have two different goals. It just was never going to work out 100 percent.”
Friends close to the couple felt that the marriage was doomed from the get-go:
“They peaked before they even got married. Right after it was over, they started to drift apart. [Usher] just wasn’t ready to settle down, at least not with her.”
Another source said:
“No one I’ve spoken to is surprised. As bad as this is gonna sound, it was never a matter of ‘I wonder if they’ll divorce,’ but more like ‘I wonder WHEN they’ll divorce.’”
Obviously, ever since the divorce, the only thing that binds them are the children. While the ex-couple are said to be tied in mediation talks, it seems that Tameka may be without a home soon.
